A retired accountant who grew up with music, having a father who was a competitive ballroom dancer there was always big band music playing in the house. In her teens she joined a musical society and was introduced to operettas and musicals, the society having many aspiring opera singers gaining stage experience, gave her friends who eventually achieved their dreams and introduced Maureen to the world of opera. Working for United Nations Agencies and living in Switzerland and the UK for fourteen years resulted in an introduction to classical music, at the same time never forgetting the music from her childhood.

Since joining Fine Music in 1994, Maureen has presented programs across the musical spectrum. She has just presented her 1,000th “Jazz, Pure & Simple”. A tremendous achievement!
